Civil War Documents
From the History of Harrison County Missouri: "Company E, Third Cavalry, Missouri State Militia, was organized April, 1862, with Captain Charles B. McAfee in command. Colonel Walter A. King commanded the Third Cavalry, and the principal duty performed was operating against guerrillas and bushwhackers, and preserving the peace in various counties of the state." The 3rd MSM merged into the 6th MSM in February 1863, and, although Isam was gone, his name was carried forward.
